    THE GERMAN SPEAKING TYROLEANS GO TO THE POLL ON NOVEMBER 22 TO DECIDE WHERE THEIR FUTURE LIES.

    THE MEN AND WOMEN, WHO ARE OF GERMAN STOCK, BECAME ITALIANS AT THE END OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR WHEN THEIR PART OF THE TYROL WAS CEDED TO ITALY.

    AFTER 50 YEARS DISCORD BETWEEN ROME AND VIENNA OVER SOUTH TYROL -- DARKENED BY ACTS OF TERRORISM AND REPRESSION -- ITALY HAS DECIDED TO MAKE SOME CONCESSIONS TO THE GERMAN TYROLEANS DEMANDS.

    THIS IS A PACKAGE OF 137 POINTS BESTOWING GREATER POWERS OF LOCAL LEGISLATION IN MANY FIELDS. IT PROMISES BENEFITS IN HOUSING, JOBS, INVESTMENT, LEGAL PROCEEDINGS, TOURISM AND SCHOOLING. GERMAN LANGUAGE, RADIO, TELEVISION AND FILM PROGRAMMES WILL BE BROADENED.

    THE VOTE ON WHETHER TO ACCEPT THE NEW PACKAGE WILL BE TAKEN BY 800 PEOPLE, ELECTED TO ACT FOR THE 250,000 GERMAN SPEAKING TYROLEANS.
